Just after a little advice, after blowing my first bearing, was the spur gear bearing, which also ended stripping the spur gear slightly.

I have ordered a traxxas replacement from Lhs.

I'm looking into getting some bearings from the Internet. I was wondering on which type you guys recommend

Rubber seals give you ability to re oil/ grease. Metal seals prob have a little more dirt resistance.

I'm not ready to venture to ceramic bearing yet? Expense an all that.

However, if I'm going to replace within metal bearings ? Which seal should I go for, I think I'm going the route of use to fail. Rather than maintain.

Any advice will be cool.
